Vicariously Yours

Joined 9 years ago from Fort Collins, CO




I'm what is politely known as a "generalist," meaning I've had far more than the usual number of jobs during my lifetime--I've been everything from a construction worker to a foodserver to a Navy jet pilot--but I've managed to take a little something from every one of them. Now I'm employed in a profession ideally suited to drawing from all those earlier experiences--writing. I have lots of stories to tell, and opinions and experiences to share.
